Cleveland, Ohio.—Death Tuesday

Andy Brogan’s 27-year search for
his wife but his Evangeline-like
legend, scrawled on the back of a
poster advertising a burlesque danc
er, saved him from a grave in pot
The story goes that Andy, as a
young Irish Immigrant settled In
Chattanooga. Tenn., rising to./af
fluence as a saloonkeeper.
The blue bloods of the soutlr, the
legend goes, came to his saloons,
one in Knoxville and one In Chat
tanooga. Prohibition came to Ten
nessee In 1905. Black-haired young
Andy sold his saloons and took his
pretty wife and 145,000 north to
seek fortune anew.
They settled for awhile In Col
orado Springs. Andy left his wile
there and the *45,000 for her to
keep for him while he started hunt
ing a new home and business.
He found both but lost his wife
and *45,000. He wired for her to
come. There was no answer. He
wired again. No answer. Andy went
to Colorado Springs to find the
pretty southern girl. She was gore
Ever since then, according to the
legend. Andy has been wandering
through the United States and
Canada peering at faces of wom
en. He worked at times, then with
a little money he went on.
The story of Brogan's long hunt
was told principally by John F.
Kelly, of Cleveland, who as a troup
er of the old days knew Andy In
Chattanooga and who took care of
him as a broken old man.
Kelly gave Andy jobs several
times when the wapderer drifted
into Cleveland. Here Andy used to
work at Kelly's factory but he al
ways hit ttoe road again except the
last time when he was felled by
Andy died Sunday, wrlkled, gray,
and bent, at 75. Kelly aad his
friends today were "chipping In,"

talk began with reminiscences of
30 years ago and followed his serv

growth and development of the ru

to its present day efficiency. Thirty
years, ago the surrounding country
was receiving no delivery of qiaU

realizing the need of rural mail de

which were subsequently, examined
by the post dtfice department and
accepted. Since that time these men
have continuously served their pa

competence and loyalty.
